Top 10 Books to Make You Cry

This week's Top 10 Tuesday topic from The Broke and the Bookish is:
 Top Ten Books to Make You Cry.

Get out your Kleenex. Here are my top tearjerkers.

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling
You know saying goodbye to Dumbledore always destroys me!

2. Kira Kira - Cynthia Kadohata
A younger sister copes with her sister's brave battle with cancer.

3. Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson
A book with a dead kid in it. That's always gonna make me cry.

4. The Higher Power of Lucky - Susan Patron
A wonderful book, about a plucky girl coping with the loss of her mother.

5. Marley and Me - John Grogan
I'm not a dog person, but this book is so heartbreaking!

6. Charlotte's Web - E.B. White
"It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both." I defy anyone not to cry at that line!

7. Flowers for Algernon - Daniel Keyes
Ah, one of the saddest books I've ever read, about a mentally challenged man who gains everything, and then loses it all.

8. Edward's Eyes - Patricia MacLachlan
Sweet and super sad! Another dead kid book.

I'm racking my brain to think of two more... I don't know! Eight weepy books is enough, don't you think? What are your top tearjerkers?
